Worth trying

Greatfamilyrentals is a very inexpensive family vacation home rental site for US rentals.



 Greatfamilyrentals is a small family vacation home rental site with about 600 listings.



Greatfamilyrentals is a US based family vacation rental site with some European / Caribbean listings

Visitor Traffic


Greatfamilyrentals don't publish overall traffic figures, but see above chart for their latest Alexa traffic ranking. Given the relatively small number of listings, the traffic rating is surprisingly high ! We are currently trialing with listing 2148 and have been pleased with the level of enquiries, given that ours is a European vacation rental property.

Ease of Use for Advertisers


Greatfamilyrentals capture a lot of details during the set-up, which means it takes a little longer than other vacation home rental sites ( but is useful for aiding renters who use the "advanced search" option).

Greatfamilyrentals provides excellent statistics on the performance of your listing. Keeps a log of all enquiries, tracks the number of times the property has appeared in search results, the number of email inquiries, the number of clicks through to an owner's own site, the number of times a renter has saved the property to their Renter's Area and the number of times a renter has used the Tell A Friend feature about your property

Greatfamilyrentals supports the Rentors.org calendar and guest book. 

Greatfamilyrentals also automatically creates a listing of your family vacation rental  home in Google Base.

I had some issues with my spam filter screening messages fom this site, so make sure to configure your settings to avoid this. (Greatfamilyrentals provides help on how to do this in their FAQ section.)

Ease of use for Renters


Search facilities for renters on Greatfamilyrentals are excellent, including a key word search and a search by nightly/ weekly/ monthly rental rate.

Greatfamilyrentals description pages provide lots of categorized detail (almost too much !) This can be helpful where renters have very specific requirements.



Greatfamilyrentals is one of the least expensive sites : it's surprising that more people have not signed up at these prices.
